Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Holidays. The holiday season is a time for celebration and a time for giving. The spirit is in the togetherness and the thought to which you put into thinking about others.
This year, my guild (Maritime Modern Quilt Guild) did a brown bag challenge. Each participant put 2 metres of fabric (yardage, charm squares, fat quarters, etc.) into a bag. I got Gillian's bag. She does not use social media, so I had to talk to other guild members to get some ideas.
There were three fabrics: maple leaf print, green, and cream. I decided to make a table runner and placemats.
I was able to make four placemats: two with green background and two with cream background. This was a good challenge in learning to use fabric wisely -- measure three times, measure again, cut once. 😉
I used gold thread and quilted a few different motifs, which do not show well in the photos.
I received a wonderful tote bag from Gail. I put three fabrics in my bag: polka dot, orange and purple.
I love it!
This was a great opportunity to challenge ourselves to use fabrics we might not normally use and to learn more about a fellow guild member in order to make something specifically for them.
It's time to link up your finishes from this week. Please visit a few of the link ups to get some inspiration and to share some quilty love. There will be one more linkup for 2022.
